So far, so good.
That's the message from Streets Commissioner David Perri regarding the snowstorm blanketing Philadelphia right now, just two days after a different storm dropped a half-foot on some parts of the city.
"Some of the streets are just wet. Other streets have a small accumulation of slush," Perri said. "We simply don't have the snow depths on the streets at this point to warrant plowing."
Perri said 176 city vehicles are scattering salt now to prevent freezing on the roads tonight. But they won't start a full-blown plowing operation until snow depths on the streets exceed two inches.
The worst of the storm is expected to be over by early afternoon, Perri said.
Mayor Nutter talked about the city's preparations for the storm yesterday but will not be unavailable to comment today, administration spokesman Mark McDonald said.
Nutter was at the White House this morning for a meeting on climate change, according to a Twitter post by a city official.
Perri said he has communicated with the mayor via email this morning.
Accompanying Nutter at the White House was Sam Phillips, deputy managing director for the Office of Emergency Management.
UPDATE: Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald sent a statement from the White House regarding the meeting Nutter attended this morning.
